So lately I've been working on a Mud Shimeji and thought that you guys would like to know how to make your own!
Whats a Shimeji you ask?
Shimeji For Mac Desktop; How To Download Shimejis For Mac; Shimejis For Mac Windows 10; Shimejis For Mac Pro; Download Shimeji-ee 1.0.7. Shimenji-ee is a fun software program that enables users to add one or several silly characters to their screen that play around and wander.
Well, they are these cute little characters that walk around on your computer screens while you run other programs.
Basically, they are little characters trapped on your computer xD
So, heres how to make one!
Thank you to Sansy for letting me use their OC in this tutorial!
You'll need an existing Shimeji on your computer. These are really easy to find though so do not worry! But I'd suggest using a sans Shim as it just makes things a bit easier.
Once you have one, you're ready for step 2!
Once you have the Shim downloaded, copy the folder and paste it on your desktop by righting clicking any blank space on your desktop.
How To Make A Shimeji In Photoshop Tutorial
Open the folder and find the sub folder titled 'Img'
This folder will hold all the images used in the Shimeji's animation, along with a few other files.
DO NOT TOUCH THE OTHER FILES ONLY THE IMAGES ARE NEEDED
Select the sub sub folder (many folders such organize) and find the first image.
Open the image in your art program.
I use MediBang, but other programs such as PhotoShop work as well.
Time to start tracing! Make a new layer and, using red, trace over the body. You do not need to worry too much about details here! Just change the arms, legs or eyes here!
Once you have finished your first trace, delete the original layer and get ready to trace again!
This time with black, trace over the image once more, adding details along the way.
Once you are finished with the final tracing, its time to start adding some colour and some extra details!
Step Eight (wow theres a lot of steps xD):
Save the image in the folder which you found it. This will replace the original image but that is exactly what you want.
Go through the folder and double check that it is there before moving onto the next step!
Now its time to test your first frame of your Shimeji!
Go back to the first folder and scroll until you find the 'Shimeji-ee' option.
This should have an icon that looks like a little stick figure in a TV.
Double click this option and wait for the window to pop up. Select, 'Use Selected' and wait for your Shimeji to drop down!
For now, you will only have the standing Shimeji set as what you want. Go through all the images (and there is A LOT) and repeat these steps to get the full animation with your character.
I hope you guys have enjoyed this tutorial! Keep a look out for the future Toxicated Skelly group in Shimeji form!
